  1. Marriage Story

“Whose fault?” is a question behind every divorce. Written and directed by Noah Baumbach, Marriage Story is a painfully intimate picture of a marriage that has fallen apart. Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson play Charlie and Nicole Barber, a terrific couple who are now struggling with divorce proceedings. For nearly two and a half hours, viewers may find themselves submerged in the movie and realise that divorce happens not when love ends but at the a moment nest described by Nicole when she said “I didn’t belong to myself”.

If you can travel in time to make someone fall in love with you, would you do it? Tim on his 21st birthday knows that men in his family can travel through time.

Domhnall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams, a muse of many a love story, bring viewers a humorous classic of a boy trying to win over girl. No doubt this is the must-watched movie if you are a fan of Rachel McAdams.
